Excellent, beautiful filmmaking
19 November 2001 | by mellernSee all my reviews

The film's plotline is not enough to evoke what this film is about. It is shot in on black and white, grainy film, to give the audience a feel of the late-1940s-early 50's. Marianne, the main character, is a young girl of about 9 who discovers life in West Germany right after the war. The presence of a rich American in the town, who is having an affair with an English-speaking neighbor, changes the lives of the kids to the utmost. Their poor economic condition is highlighted by his seemingly rich, happy Americanness... The film shows what war does to kids, how they perceive the world, the social life of Germans after the war.

And, despite the theme, this movie is HILARIOUS! I found myself laughing throughout the whole movie; the actors do a terrific job; the scenes are remarkable; it is definitely worth seeing for anyone in the mood for a serious, thought-provoking laugh.
